One of the most pleasing facts for Bangladesh bowling in this series was Mustafizur Rahman's form as he is getting back to his sublime best.

Yes, the wicket was difficult to bat on and it was perfect for a bowler like Mustafizur.

But the left-arm pacer was outstanding compared to all the other pacers of the series.

Mustafizur took seven wickets in the series, one shy of the highest wicket-taker of the series.

The most important part of his bowling was the economy rate as the left-arm pacer gave away just 60 runs from 17 overs he bowled altogether in the series, which is superb.

One performance must be mentioned during the third game.

Australia needed 23 runs from 12 deliveries with two proper batsmen in the crease.

And Mustafizur conceded just one run in the 19th over of the innings with five dot balls as both the Aussies batsman had no clue against Mustafizur’s cutter or slower deliveries.

Ahead of the World T20I, Mustafizur’s form will certainly be a sigh of relief for the Bangladesh camp.
